Mining vehicles often have a narrow width that allows them to navigate the narrowest places. Due to the cramped environment that mining vehicles operate in, they often come equipped with 4 wheel drive and advanced steering to maximise manoeuvrability. To withstand the regular shocks that mining vehicles encounter, an all terrain four wheel suspension system is vital to their performance.

Sturdy mining vehicles which can continue to operate in the most extreme conditions are an essential component of your business.
